Well the Nason clan had a very laid back ushering in of 2018. We hung out, watched movies, stayed warm (we are under a severe temperature warning: -35 with wind chill), and went to bed shortly after midnight. It is nice to have a full house with extra teens flopping on whatever sofa is available. 😃
By comparison, New Year’s morning has been less laid back. After cooking an army sized breakfast, it was discovered that the barn had a broken water pipe and that the stalls were flooded. Rubber boots go on over pyjamas and off we go to MUCK out the mess. Thankfully the barn itself stays fairly warm due to the cows’ and horses’ body heat, so it could have been much worse.
Regardless, the mess is (mostly) cleaned up and everyone is back where they belong. Repairs will take place over the next two days as everything is closed today for the holiday. Now to thaw the humans out and have a cup of coffee or two with Baileys. Life on the Funny Farm never goes according to plan.
Happy New Year from our farm/home to yours. May your 2018 be filled with blessings and happiness.
Thanks for reading!
